The University of Wisconsin–La Crosse has an outstanding jazz program with performance opportunities for all with two big bands and two jazz combos. The jazz program at UWL is very active, performing multiple concerts each year, providing clinics for high schools, and touring. The Jazz Orchestra, the premier big band, is directed by Dr. Jeff Erickson, the Director of Jazz Studies. The Jazz Ensemble is directed by Professor Jon Ailabouni. The jazz combos are directed by jazz faculty and perform both on- and off- campus each semester.

Participants in the program come from all colleges and majors of the university. We offer an emphasis in Jazz Performance with a BA or BS in Music.

We hope you enjoy browsing our jazz website and invite you to visit the school and attend our concerts.
